CROSSROADS “CRASH” COURSE

FOR CAREER TRANSITION

 

What you learn in these 7 sessions could change your life! 

 

Step by step, this class will help guide you how to find a job if you are unemployed or anticipating a career transition. Our Crossroads "Crash" Course for Career Transition is based upon Crossroads Career Network's "Seven Steps Workbook”  (www.crossroadscareer.org). We call it the “Crash Course” because it is an intense version of a class often taught over 7-14 weeks. 

 

Here's our schedule for this month's class:

For more information about the Crash Course, visit our website.

 

The Crash Course consists of 7 sessions conducted over 2-1/2 weeks. Please plan to attend ALL sessions as the class is cumulative and missing one session can put you seriously behind. Topics covered during the seven sessions include: 

 

  • Building a Positive Attitude
  • Discovering Your Gifts, Passions and Calling
  • Developing Your Brand and Writing Resumes for Results
  • Methods for Finding Opportunities
  • Having Engaging Interviews

  • Take an online career assessment
  • Get a personalized resume review
  • Have a realistic mock interview with a hiring professional
  • Share ideas and opportunities with others in career transition
